The Chief Sanitary Inspectorate has published warnings regarding the batch of dietary supplements Biowap Osteo and Molekin Osteo. The reason is the use of a component contaminated with 2-chloroethanol in their production.
GIS representatives indicated that 2-chloroethanol is a substance derived from ethylene oxide and is harmful to health. “The presence of this substance in food in the European Union is not allowed” – underlined in the press release. Therefore, you should not consume the product lots that are affected by the warnings.
As communicated, the Chief Sanitary Inspector was informed about the withdrawal of a batch of Molekin Osteo dietary supplements, 60 tablets, carried out by Natur Produkt Pharma and Natur Produkt Zdrovit, due to the use of calcium carbonate contaminated with 2-chloroethanol in their production. For the same reason, the withdrawal was also announced by Przedsiębiorstwo Farmaceutyczne LEK – AM.
